ABSTRACT
We draw the strategy for development of basic clean technologies that have to be used within national black carbon management system in the Russian Arctic. Black carbon is the significant short-lived climate forcer and it has to be under global control. The main black carbon sources (transport, energy, industry, biomass burning, wildfires) are outside the Arctic. Migration of black carbon to the Arctic from the emission areas is due to the general atmospheric circulation. Therefore, the management system of black carbon content in the Arctic must be global. Today such a system is missing. In the current geopolitical conditions, such a system should consist of national systems for national responsibility areas of the Arctic countries (Russia, Canada, USA, Denmark and Norway). These national systems should be aimed at the control of emissions of black carbon, on the operational measurements of its concentration in the atmosphere, the definition of patterns and scenarios of its penetration into the Arctic, and also on decision making support in the field of regulation at the national level. Another task is the coordination of national systems for ensuring the effective functioning of the global control system for black carbon in whole. Development and introduction in practice of these basic technologies will have a stimulating effect on the market of environmental goods and services. The Ministry of education and science of Russia provided financial support for this research with the state order 2014/166 and state contract 14.515.11.0002.
